    "Although this is the only shoe that fits me, New Balance never puts them on sale. Makes me angry."

    I weigh 215 play 3 hard sets Doubles 3 times wkly

    - Anaheim, CA

    "Not a good shoe for over 185 lbs. Details are correct in ad but sole is thin hard and no give. Rollbars unconfortably felt if person over 200 lbs, but needed because shoe not well built for tennis stability otherwise. Make feet sore. Not worth more than $55."

    "I have a narrow foot. The 806 is one of the few tennis shoes that actually comes close to fitting properly. Quality is good. Durability has been OK. The shoe is comfortable out of the box."

    Great All Around Shoe

    - Boiling Springs, PA, USA

    "Comfortable, good balance, works well with my orthotics. Feet feel less fatigued, as is the case with all of the New Balance shoes I have used. I would recommend these to everyone."

    Unmatched fit

    - Bozeman, MT, USA

    "I wear a size 15B (narrow). There is no other tennis shoe that fits me so well and performs so well for me. The negatives are few: they wear out relatively quickly, probably due to the sole material that provides such good traction, and I miss the return policy New Balance used to have for shoes that wore out in less than 6 months. Still, I buy them because I have been unable to find any other shoe in the market that fits so well and plays so well."

    Quality has gone down

    "Leather seems lighter but has look and feel of plastic."

    806 shoe 4E

    806's are perfect for tennis and every day walking.

    Quality of my tennis shoes was poor.

    - Newtown Square, Newtown Township, PA 19073, USA

    "My tennis shoes were shoddy. Stitching near top eyelet was coming apart. There was a cut on rear left shoe. These shoes were a replacement for shoes which had worn out after 5mos. with very limited wear. The replacement shoes did not appear to be first quality."

    Great Shoes

    - Australia

    "Having really wide feet (4E) has made it really difficult to find good tennis shoes, however, these are perfect; fit great, run great, feel great. Love them."

    Not the same quality and fit as years ago.

    - Fort Pierce, FL, USA

    "I have been wearing the same New Balance tennis shoe since the 90's. The model number changes just about every year and the style of the shoe has also changed, just a little. Now I find that I have to purchase a larger size, because they seem to be made much smaller than in the past. I have actually put my three year old sneaker right next to the new one, and you can see how much smaller the new sneakers are,compared to the older ones. Also the tongue keeps falling to the side, no matter how tight they are laced."

    The MC806W Tennis Shoe gives the support of a mid cut shoe and is still comfortable right out of the box.

    - Marietta, GA, USA

    "I have been wearing this shoe through the entire series - 801, 802, 803, 804 and 806 (NB skipped 805 for some reason). It is still my favorite shoe. It gives the support of a mid cut shoe yet is still very comfortable to play in. The leather is soft but supportive. I need good ankle support and this shoe provides that. The earlier versions had slightly better insoles and I preferred the leather toe guard, but that is very minor. My last pair did wear out the Ndurance sole a little quicker that usual. I still love this shoe and plan to continue using them."

    Best tennis shoe I have ever tried.

    - Mesa, AZ, USA

    "I have 4E wide feet and New Balance is the only manufacturer I know of that makes tennis shoes that wide. These are excellent shoes on hard surface courts, great traction and can turn on a dime. Outsoles will never last me a year as claimed, as I play tennis every day all year round. I have tried other shoes that caused me severe foot problems. Best tennis shoes for me!"
